I Graduated from College and this is My Letter to My Parents

By: Abielle in Inspirational

Mommy/Daddy, Ma/Pa, Naynay/Tatay, Father/Mother this is for you…Well I call them Ma and Dad.

First off, I had to write a letter because I have no other chance to say a speech since I’m not Cum Laude or Magna or Suma or any kind of “Laude” for that matter. Sorry about that.

College is tough I know. Not just for me but most definitely for you both. Of course, it’s not just about college; it’s the whole education thing. You guys have gone through so much hard work to put me through school and I want you to know that it’s better than all of the gifts that you could ever give a child.

Anyway, there is so much I’d like to say to you, Ma and Dad.

Congratulations because you did it! You put a child through school and you did it with passion. Congratulations because you never failed to provide and show your support towards all my endeavors.
Congratulations because FINALLY we’re done with the first part of our journey through life!
Congratulations because you’re finally done with paying for my tuition! HAHA!

Also, thank you! I know this may be cliché and cheesy and typical but hey, I’m pretty sure you would never get tired of hearing thank you. You have to realize that by putting me through school, you became children yourselves. You were students once again. You were a part of our projects, you were in our school plays, you taught us what we needed to learn from parents, you were the doers of our difficult homework, the providers for our projects and so much more.
Thank you for studying with me.
Thank you for guiding me in this journey.
Thank you for being the responsible parents you are.
Thank you for being my inspiration to finish school.
Thank you for keeping God in my life through it all.
Thank GOD for you.

Sorry for so many things.
Sorry for the times I have raised my voice.
Sorry for the times I go home late.
Sorry for the misunderstandings.
Sorry for asking dad to drive my friends and I around so much.
Sorry for wasting some cash.
Sorry for ignoring you at times.
I won’t even find excuses anymore. I’ve wronged you and I’m sorry. It’s all part of the journey.

I love you both so much, more than anything else in this world. You may hear me share stories of my friends, professors, some boys and how much I like them but you have no idea how much I share stories about you to them and how much I LOVE you. I love you not because you put me through school, but because I. JUST. DO.
So there, Ma and Dad, to simplify it all …





Hi! I’m Abielle, a Communication Arts student from Colegio de San Juan de Letran Manila. I’m 20 years old and would love to build a career on singing, writing and film directing. I've done some modelling but my passion is still with – Film and Writing. I’m opinionated--peculiar little puzzle that even I can’t figure myself out. Maybe through writing, we’d get bits and pieces of this puzzle together. Follow this puzzle’s twitter and Instagram: abielleremo
